Historic Clemson Photos #51 - 1920's Downtown

by -

I'm pleased to present today's Historic Clemson Photo, submitted by long time TigerNet member Mintaka®.

These historic posts will each have a sponsor with a very brief video message. After playing, the update and photos will replace the video.

Thank you very much, and enjoy! --Crump and B-Meist

Today we've got to blow the dust off these photos because they are very old, taken around the late 1920s. They are small and the resolution is poor, but they show an area of downtown that is hardly ever seen in that era.

The above photo is from what is now downtown Clemson facing toward Tillman. If you
look at the photo you can tell where Sloan's store is, or for the younger crowd, the building that the Subway restaurant is located in today.

Now, I'm about 95% sure that the photo above was taken on the same day by the same
person back in the late 1920s. I think he just crossed the road and took a photo of what is now downtown Clemson. Like I said, 95% sure but I can't find any landmarks to confirm it. If he did, then the house in the upper right corner is sitting where Mr. Knickerbocker's is located today. Amazing, isn't it?
